Duration: 2 class periods
Objectives: the students will be able to,
fully explain the plot and characters by working collaboratively with another student to illustrate a segment of the work.
demonstrate understanding of vocabulary and grammar by completing various writing, speaking, listening, and reading activities.
Pens/pencils, markers, large paper, worksheets, dictionaries, and lined paper.
Day One - The students will come in with the story read for homework and the past subjunctive quote sheet translated. We will briefly discuss plot and characters in the work. The students will then be broken into groups of 2-3 (depending on class size). Each group will be given a piece of the story. They will have time to discuss their segment in the target language and ask any questions they might have. They will then begin to plan their poster. For homework, they will complete a comprehension exercise.
Day Two - The students will come prepared to complete their poster and renarrate it that day. They will also hand in their homework. They will be given time to draw out either one large picture or a series of smaller pictures to facilitate their explanation/renarration of the segment. When they have finished, they will be responsible as a class for putting themselves in order (based on the plot). They will then narrate the story in their own words. The students are graded using the New Haven School District's oral rubric.
